So I know there's already another granola recipe in this blog but i thought this would be another option just in case you are looking for new ideas.
The granola made with this recipe has a very interesting quality: it is very crisp!
And along with a glass of soy milk, almond milk and some fruit (especially apple and apricot) is transformed into a full breakfast and otherwise quite tasty. Also, you could eat it with some plain yogurt
- 2 cups wheat germ
- Thick 6 cups oats (organic if possible)
- ½ cup chopped almonds, walnuts, pumpkin seeds
- ½ cup shredded coconut (optional)
- ¼ cup quinoa (optional)
- ¾ cup water
- 1 ½ cup honey or maple syrup
- ¼ cup sunflower oil (can also use vegetable oil)
- ½ cup shredded coconut
- Zest of two lemons
- Dry fruits to taste
- Combine all the dry ingredients, blending the liquid ingredients separately (only if you have honey that is not very liquid, otherwise collect the liquid in a bowl and mix well) then add to dry ingredients slowly and stir with a spatula .
- Mix until a homogeneous result. Spread the mixed ingredients in a rectangular baking sheet pan. Bake in moderate oven (350F to 375F) for 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Cool and add raisins or any dried fruit you wish.
- As you can see is quite simple, cheap and otherwise healthy and more reliable than the granola we get many times at the grocery store.
